As a writing professor, I often ask my students to consider what certain verb choices highlight and what others cover up. Rarely are the examples this blantent.

A compliant reporter who identifies himself as press and was ON AIR is arrested, along with his team. What is going on?!

Telling that the president used the line "When the looting starts, the shooting starts" — uttered in 1967 by Miami Police Chief Headley. Headley used police dogs, shotguns, and stop & frisk against black residents who he said were "taking advantage" of civil rights.

It's not recent but I love Lynn Festa's Sentimental Figures of Empire and the chapter on Émile in Julia Douthwaite's The Wild Girl, Natural Man, and the Monster.

This one hell of a time to be teaching a history course on vandalism AND to be a French historian.

Hi Academic journals! Can you please inform reviewers of your decisions please? We are all shouting into the void - it is nice to hear a little echo back.

Ugh, kinetic sand. My opinions on these things are highly overdeveloped and emphatic 😂

PlayDoh is the worst. I highly, highly recommend Mad Mattr or SloFlo — so much easier to clean up plus my kids love it. And it doesn’t dry out. Homemade slime is also fun.

That poll doesn’t seem that discouraging to me: 50% yes, 1/3 unsure before we even have a vaccine or know anything about it is a solid foundation. Now, how the Trump admin will handle it — subsidizing cost? Massive public health campaign? Mandates? — that’s where I get worried.

I don’t know, 50% of people saying they’d get a hypothetical vaccine, with no knowledge of who developed it, what doctors say, how much it costs, what side effects are, etc seems pretty good to me. That number could go way up, depending on various factors.

“The power that [Amy Cooper] felt she had…is a...long-standing power that white women have possessed & chosen to exercise at various points in our history...they know it’s a deadly power, & they know it when they choose to exercise it,” Jones-Rogers said.

Danna, am I to understand that this means your now making your way through the Marvels? Because I am excited for that journey. (Also, wait until you get to Thor Ragnorok!)
